Explore the most popular Parks in Belgium with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

We struggled to find the beginning of the trail because the hotel that's located there (next to the road) blocked the entrance to the park. we had to take a deviation for 1,5 km and then catch up. the Trail itself is not well maintained and in some sections, is barely marked.

Great outing!

A historical trail in Belgium's region "Voerendaal" (Fouron" in French) with maximum height of 346 m and a minimum of 193 m or 153 m difference to conquer twice. Peace of cake. This round trip, mostly through a woodland, is close to Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle) where you can spend the afternoon if you start early morning.
Starting at "Drielandenpunt", a tripoint where Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands meet, going downhill along the German border to Neu-Moresnet and further to Kelmis, previously known as Moresnet and once an independent free state due to the zinc mines. In those days there was thus a “Vierlandenpunt” (quadripoint). See https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutraal_Moresnet?wprov=sfsi1 and http://historiek.net/misverstandje-moresnet-overleeft-bizarre-eeuw/58091/ ). From Kelmis the tour leads you, via the Moresnetterstrasse, rue de la Calmine (“Minestreet”) to Moresnet-Chapelle where via the Kalvariënberg / rue du Calvaire and the rue d’Aix back though the wooded hills to the starting point, where you can enjoy an after-walk too.
